My vehicle does not fit in my garage. Not because it's so cluttered. It's just an old old garage and my van is too wide to comfortably get inside. So the garage is the home to all our outdoor paraphernalia. Gardening gear, sports equipment, Barbecue, Smoker, Tools and all the toys of the season.
Oh...and the recycling.
We have to take our recycling to a recycling centre in town or you can sort it and put it on the curb every other garbage day. I like recycling but I'd rather drop it off than blue bag it all. So sometimes the garage is overwhelmed with boxes and papers. Two of my children have paper routes and we always have a pile or two leftover as well. Needless to say I need to fill the van and get it done rather than have it take over the garage one more day.
I don't want my children to ever tell me that they can't get to their bikes or toys because of my recycling mess. When I tell them to go out and play I never want them to use me as an excuse of why they couldn't.
How is your recycling? Is it working for you? Do you need new containers like these ones? Sometimes the right containers really do help.
